and government, foundations and universities. asked the mayors who are here. los angeles is getting green and chicago is getting an infrastructure because republicans are working together to do it. they did not check their brains at the door. their purpose was to get something done. why is this true? why does cooperation work better? nobody is right all the time, and a broken clock is right twice a day. [applause] everyone of us and everyone of them who is compelled to spend leading lives between those extremes, knowing we are never going to be right all the time and hopefully we are right more than twice a day. [laughter] unfortunately, the fraction that dominates the republican party does not see it that way. they think government is always right and compromise is weakness. in the last couple of elections they defeated two republican senators because they dared to cooperate on issues important to the country, even national security. they beat a republican congressman with almost 100 percent voting record because they said he realizes he did not have to hate the president to disagree wit

, please welcome -- from los angeles, california. y[applause] >> some of you may remember that earlier this year republicans shut me out of my hearing on contraception. they did not hear from a single woman, even though they were debating an issue that affects nearly every woman. because it happened in congress, people notice, but it happens all the time. to many women are shut out of silence-- and silenced, so while i am honored to be at this podium, it could easily have been any one of you. i am here because i spoke out, and this system for each of us must speak out here again we have heard about two profoundly different futures that could await women in this country. and how one of those looks like an oensive, obsolete relic of our past. they are not imagined. the future could become real. in that america, your new president could become a man who stands by when a public figure tries to silence of private citizens and on which hate, a man who will not stand up to those slurs or any of the victim did not voices in his own party. it would be an america in which you have a vice preside

. this is a "los angeles times" head line covering the welfare attack the first panel discussed. it was repeated by rick santorum at the republican convention. this clip got a lot of play. people found it very refreshing that the "los angeles times" was willing to directly call out rick santorum and to say that the claim was inaccurate. it does not say, repeats welfare attack calls -- called inaccurate. there is no punch polling. it is very direct. this is the person making the claim, and it is inaccurate. this is a kind of coverage we do not often see. it is quite powerful. it has the potential to make politicians think twice, to make them have that conversation that was talked about in the first panel. do we want to go over this ? fact texting is not magic -- over this line? fact checking is not magic. what else constructively can journalists do? this is an example i think might be especially helpful to reporters. think about how to report a story. you guys don't write your own head lice. i understand. you do not have control over whether you can get a line like that into your publication. but

demonstrations, in i believe los angeles and houston, among other places. those are posted on the web. but we have no indication of anything that is violent in nature. nonetheless, immediately after the attack in benghazi, we began outreach to a number of groups within the country, faith-based groups and others, who could be the target of a violent attack and provided them with guidance on things they can do to make sure they are as safe as possible. so we continue that outreach. we continue working with our local partners in terms of what they are seeing on the ground and then monitoring the open source media. >> thank you. let me ask you, finally, what we as a government can do to counteract the impact of this film? we are a country of almost 310 billion people now. this film, hateful, really, was done by a handful of people, and yet american embassies, consulates, not only are the subject of protests, which is very much in the american spirit of civil protests and right of free speech, but going beyond that to destruction of property and at its worst a terrorist attack on benghazi that kil
